Single-Parent Holidays and Breaks

Bonding time on a single-parent holiday.Bonding time on a single-parent holiday.

One-parent holidays are great for spending quality bonding time with your child/children away from domestic settings and daily routines. But while you’re away, you may all also need some time out from what can be an especially intense relationship. Specialised single-parent holidays can be the answer: mums or dads get to socialise with like-minded people and have some rare adult time, while kids get ready-made playmates – especially important if you’re travelling with just one child. If your child is sensitive to being surrounded by 2+2 families, this can also be the solution. Organised holidays can also be a way of experiencing adventurous destinations you might be wary of taking on as a lone parent.

Alternatively, certain non-dedicated holidays can be well-suited to solo-parent travel, either by their nature or because the travel provider offers single-parent discounts and/or particular amenities. Among the former, outdoor activity holidays can be especially great for single-parent families.

• Do your research and book a resort or an organised trip where you're sure there’ll be other kids around your child’s age.

• Consider booking a resort with a kids’ club so you get some time off.

• If you have an ex-partner who also holidays with your child, make sure you choose a different kind of trip to mix things up a bit.
